Red, White, Blue and Yellow Balloons Suspended in Air

(Or How to Make Sure Your Party Consists of
More Than Your Kids and Your Cats…)


I’m sure your cats are great! I mean… What’s not to love? They’re cute! They’re cuddly! They… Lick and sniff each other’s butts…

…But did you really clean the house, hire entertainment, and put up decorations for Fluffy’s benefit?

Working With Kids – Why I Love It!

Smiling Kid with Black Hair

In 2008 nearly 100% of our business was with corporate clients. Our entire business was focused around that, and things were great!

Then the Great Recession hit.

When companies are laying off employees, the last thing they’re interested in is hiring entertainment.

It was at that point we reorganized our business around the family and school market.

Until that point I had never worked too much with kids.

Parade lineup of union workers

Happy Labor Day! We hope that you have a wonderful day with family friends, and all the people in your life that matter.

We’ll be spending labor day at our local festival in downtown Mansfield. You can catch our performance at 11:45AM. Be sure to hang out afterward to say hi! Heck, we might even hook you up with a balloon animal!

Thinking about Labor Day reminds me of how blessed we are to have awesome customers like you! I don’t do this nearly enough, but…

Pumpkins glowing on water

Oh man… I NEED this.

I’ve been waiting my whole life for this!

How can I not buy this?

In my hands I’m holding a blonde afro wig. This thing has an “awesome” factor so intense that it’s creating a reality distortion field around it!

Oh, did I mention I’m standing in the middle of our local Halloween store that opens up around this time every year? Yeah… I love that place a little tooooo much…

Yeah. I’m not going to admit how much I spent on pointless costume pieces last year, but it tops four digits.

It’s bad. I need an intervention.

That reminds me though…

Row of orange retro style telephones.

We’ve just implemented a new Anti-Telemarketing policy. In a nutshell, it says that we don’t make unsolicited phone calls and that we will proactively take steps to prove it.

Family Show Video Trailer Launch!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

If you’ve been watching our Facebook you’ve probably already seen this, but the new video trailer for our upscale family show launched this weekend! This is a result of the video shoot we did about a week ago.

It’s only two minutes long, but I’m super stoked about how it came out! Go pop some popcorn, hit play, and enjoy! It’s super high energy, just like our show!
